    My name is Robert and I'm happy to announce that I just published a new release of my "Popcorn Expert" Android app. It's a popcorn making assistant which analyzes popcorn making sounds to recognize sounds of popping kernels and alert you when it's the best time to stop the microwave.

    Say "no more!" to burnt popcorn kernels!!!


    This release includes following new features:
    • Gamification - earn XP while making popcorn, unlock achievements and compete with others
    • Join the Popcorn Community and socialize - share popcorn tips, recipes and pictures
    • Completely redesigned UI with some pretty animations like speed gauge and soundwave
    • Dark Mode for nightly cooking

    If you love popcorn, and hate to burn it, you should try this app - it's free with no ads and no in-app payments. See https://ai4popcorn.com for more details, or download it directly from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.robsoft.popcorn

    Have fun and #SaveThePopcorn !

    mikedt 你好

    Do people really make their own popcorn? I thought it was something only found in movie theatres.

    That's indeed the rule, there is even a little progress bar which measures the time between pops. The tricky part is to train the neural network to correctly recognize single pops, under different conditions, different devices, etc.
